Hello girls (and guys!) Hope your Monday was more exciting than mine. I’m the queen of “blah” the first day of the new week. My sister is princess hide-in-her-cave (bedroom) until it’s absolutely necessary to come out. Monday is just something I can’t get into the groove of. Speaking of things I’m not a fan of, let’s talk about a few things that have been trending here recently; Birkenstocks and clunky shoes to be exact.
I’m just curious as to who started this trend and what on Earth makes it cute? Last I checked, Birkenstocks were for the hippies and clunky shoes were for Lady Gaga. Now before anyone goes all “stop stereotyping” on me, I’d like to explain my thoughts on this. First, I thought designers and department stores were pushing to make us all look chic and sophisticated. Last I checked, clunker shoes and Birkens were not chic and certainly not sophisticated. And second, I love a good bargain and both of these shoes scream bargain to me but those Birkenstocks are upwards of $80! The clunky white shoe is around $30. It’s a little cheaper but it also reminds me of shoes I had at 2 years old.
Another thing I have noticed that’s fashionable is rocking a crop top. Does anyone else think that these little tops just hit people at a part of their body that usually isn’t flattering? It certainly doesn’t elongate one’s figure. I had one before they were popular and it cut me in half. It wasn’t cute! I think this is a trend started by American Eagle– get teenagers to pay $30 for half a shirt. WINNING.
Anyway, I’d love your thoughts on this! Comment below!
